i am 14 years old and since i love history make a nice atmosheric historical game (with a nice story,open World type)
i know thats a Project a Professional would do,maybe a whole team of professionals,i dont know if i can do it alone.
For months i am trying to learn blender,UE 4,gimp etc.
I know to write in C and i after i will be done with it start learning C++
The problem is that even if i help in a Project as a part of a team(which i would like to program)UE 4 has blueprints,plus for coding you’ll need visual studio
which i dont intend to pay every month.From the other hand i feel ‘blueprinting’ takes all the fun in game development (even if it is easier)
I also feel like i am in a dead end.The problem with me is that i want to make a game with fascinating graphics,but in blender i cant make a decent building and i dont even know how to make a Human yet
Well,even though i would mostly like to program,doing only that (in a team perhaps)i feel the game is not ‘mine’
Yes i hate doing 3D Modeling but in a game it looks fantastic is fantastic.
About,unreal engine,it has so many abilities that i cant get my head around it,texturing takes time,i need to learn better blueprint,i have some problems importing from blender without its texture
In blender i dont know how artist can do such things,i only know how to use some modifiers and i can build something but the models look like a 2000’s game
I’ve been mporting normal maps etc. from insanebump(a plugin of gimp) but i can barely make a realistic texture in UE 4
I know it needs time but i have so many things i want to do right now except programming,texturing etc. that i dont know if i am going to give up
Some people tell me that this is great projects that only teams with multiple professionals manage,and of course it takes some years
I just like making video games,before UE 4 i used to use unity but i didnt knew much about C#
I would’n like to have a career in game development its just a hobby,but i have many hobbies
That makes me (now that it is a school break for me) sometimes to try to learn something sitting on the computer most of the day and after a long day of wasting a lot of time of doing that i am so tired that i dont want to start anymore.In the other morning i believe i have some chances so i try again and again and again.I have no idea what to do.Some say to me to start by doing something small.I dont know if i even can do that.In the meanwhile i have many other hobbies like language learning,physics,mathematics etc. and all of this independently.
My life is a bit of a mess :):mad::)
Thanks in advance for reading all of this.
